Placement and Transfer of Credit

Steps to Enroll » Step 4: Get Placed

The Assessment and Testing Centers at our Olympia and Lacey campuses serve new and current students, and community members. Determine your college placement, take examinations for certifications, test to earn a GED®, or take proctored exams for your SPSCC courses or courses from other institutions.

Get Placed

Before registering for classes, you need to be placed at the English and math level that works best for you. Depending on your background, you may be placed by submitting test scores, such as SAT, AP, IB, SBAC, or by taking an online Guided Self Placement.

Placement Test

If other placement options do not work for your individual situation, the College Placement Test costs $25 and includes a free retake. You may take the test at the Olympia or Lacey Campus (soon to be offered remotely!). We recommend you check the testing schedule before coming to campus. Online practice tests and study guides are available to help you test your best.

Transfer Credits

To transfer in credits from another college, plan to order official transcripts from your previous college and turn in a Transfer of Credits application. Allow 3-6 weeks to process. Unofficial (or official) college transcripts can be used for placement while you wait.
